hy photograph? If you dink around with photography you have to ask that question of yourself now and then. For me, sharing images is a way of celebrating things I care about, which happen pretty much to be the natural world and its creatures. But I do cherish the occassional fine image that results when I overcome my reticence to intrude on an actual human being with my camera.

I like natural light. Nothing gets my photographic juices going better than a fine slant of light on an interesting subject. That's when I'll break off a conversation in mid-sentence, my eyes glaze over, and I dash off with my camera.

But the best part of the celebration is sharing the images that result, and opening conversations about the techniques I have learned along the way.

The images you will find, of course, in the Galleries section. The conversations are begun with the Blog. And of course, since I do on occassion need to collect the cash needed for a new lens or whatever, please don't hesitate to visit the section of Print Sales, where you will find that I really do share my images very reasonably.

Featured Artist - Art on the Divide Gallery

September 2013

Opening Sunday September 8, 1 - 4 PM

Photographs feature landscape and wildlife subjects where the play of light inspires the click of a shutter. Over the years, I've also been a closet painter, using photographs as inspirations for watercolors. These paintings, as well as recent works incentivized by my association with the artists of AODC, will also be displayed. Most of the paintings feature historic buildings in Northern California as they might have looked in decades past. Many of the works in the show will be available for purchase, together with matted and unmatted prints and cards.

Cover Shots ...

The 2012-2013 issue of the Plumas County Visitor's Guide is now out, and can be picked up just about wherever you might stop during a visit to this Northern California paradise. I am very proud to have been selected to produce the cover photography for this fine publication for the past five years.


A Nice Little Gallery ...

I've been welcomed into the fold of the Art on the Divide Cooperative Gallery in Georgetown, California. Besides photography, this fine group of artists works in watercolor, oils, sculpture, ceramics and jewelry. Each month another of the artists is featured, works are rearranged, and many of us bring up new work to be hung. The resulting refreshing of the exhibit is a good excuse to visit often. We're located in a historic building right on the main street of this old gold mining town.
